NYCHOS

Endless layers

Stacks Image 4594

Nychos was born in 1982 in Austria. He spent his childhood in the Austrian countryside with his father and his grand father, who was a hunter. He was confronted at a very young age with this brutal and cruel environment, and was genuinely traumatized by such an experience, which he later translated in a positive way into art and a profound analysis of his paintings.

Anatomy is a powerful tool to approach the inward. By slicing of layer by layer, the anatomist aims at striking a certain truth. Over the past years, Nychos has been stretching his tool to the limit in order to figure out that there’s another kind of truth. A truth that only shows when you turn yourself inside out.

Endless Layers is a multi-dimensional journey through Nychos’ oeuvre. The journey starts two dimensional, leading through select ink drawings and canvases, which pave the way for the next step: The third dimensions, visualized by three sculptures, incorporating the marriage of bronze and glass. A chemistry that is picked up on one of the main pieces of the show: Two heads, merging into each other through a deep kiss. “Chemistry” marks the interface between the anatomical and spiritual. The interface between the outside and the inside. It guides the viewer further into other dimensions. Dimensions, that are explored in the artist’s latest body of work.
